Bets turned bullish on Asian currencies for first time since early 2018 – Reuters poll

According to the latest Reuters poll, investors marked a positive shift in their outlook for the emerging Asian currencies for the first time since early last year.

Key Findings:

Bets on Indonesia’s rupiah turned bullish for the first time since early February 2018, a stark about-face for a currency that was among last year’s worst performers.

Short interest in India’s rupee, 2018’s worst performer, were down to their lowest since February.”
